Sister Anita Kurowski, SSJ
Welcome to the MUSIC Section!
My name is Sister Anita Kurowski, and I am a Sister of St. Joseph. The children call me Sister Anita. I began working at Nazareth Elementary in 2011 and since that time I have been thrilled to watch the children grow in their knowledge and love of music. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education as well as a Master in Liberal Arts (with Music Concentration) from Nazareth College,
I believe it is part of our human nature to express feelings and create connections through music making. Music is also one special way of experiencing the Holy Spirit. At Nazareth the children learn that music can enhance their life anywhere — in the classroom, on the bus, in the cafeteria, at special performances, and during Masses and Prayer Services.
I teach general music, chorus, and Pre-K dance at Nazareth. I also direct our after-school Children's Choir for students in Grades 3–6. Finally, I assist Mr. Nicholas Paruta, our Instrumental Music Teacher, with Nazareth's instrumental program (open to students in Grades 4–6). For specific information on each of these areas, click the links on the left side of this page.
We are blessed to have a general music and chorus room filled with percussion equipment, recorders, keyboards, guitars, and lots of space for growth as well as a smaller space for instrumental lessons.
It is truly a privilege for me to enter the world of music making with your children. May the music that is already in their hearts reach out and make the world a more beautiful place!
